Mauricio was an awesome tour guide. He told us a lot about how São Paulo became São Paulo and the people who were involved. His English was great. He brought us to see street art, historical sites, the Japanese neighborhood and more. If you are looking to get to know the city I HIGHLY RECOMMEND taking this tour. Mauricio’s knowledge of the city is phenomenal. I really learned a lot about the city. It was an excellent tour. And the driver was excellent. He always stayed with the car and looked out for the belongings I left inside. Obrigado Mauricio - Tom

Great tour to get an overview of Sao Paulo within a few hours. Since we only stayed a few days in Sao Paulo, we decided to book this tour. It guides you through many different neighborhoods and important sites that define this huge city. Mauricio was a wonderful guide, he was super friendly, fun and knew all the details. He even asked if we had specific things we wanted to see or do and individualized the tour since it was only 5 of us as a group. I can definitely recommend the tour for everyone who wants a quick overview and some historic facts about Sao Paulo. I would always book another tour with Mauricio, we really enjoyed his
